> 2 brief questions:
> 1/Do psych's prescribe ritalin (or similar) in the uk for treatment-resistant patients like they (i think) do in north america?
> 2/my psych know's i was once a regular amphetamine user some time ago, does this mean he won't precribe stimulants in any case? This despite the fact that i was clearly using them for self-medication? If so it is unfair. Can anyone give me their opinions on this subject

Don't know anything about the UK thing, but have been on ritalin and found it very seductive(for want of a better word then addictive). I would get my prescription and take more then I was supposd to in each dose, in order to really "feel" something. So, of course would run out before I should have, then my depression would get super bad! The last time this happened, I got to a point of being closer to suicide then I had ever been. I knew I had to just stop getting the ritalin (never did admit to my pdoc what I was doing!), because no matter how good my intentions, of only using it for some relief from my fatigue, I would end up taking more and more to get the best effect. So, be very careful!
